Rest Is Best

On Saturdays I like to remind us all to set aside time for R-E-S-T. God himself rested on the 7th day, he set the example for us to follow.
Well, I have to follow my own advice, swallow my words, and set aside some time for rest too. Some rest that will hopefully bring about

transformation for me . . .

My body's been telling me for quite a while to step back from the computer and keyboard. Lately it's become quite insistent! And the Lord has brought some people alongside to help me take the baby-steps of change. So on Monday I will go get an MRI to see what's going wrong inside my back, and also on Monday will start a series of dear blogging widows who will carry on Widows Christian Place for the next month or two.

I'll still be here, but more behind the scenes. You can contact me at or Widows Christian Place, PO Box 4596, Florence, SC 29502, or message me on Facebook and I'll reply when I can. And don't forget to mail in your "Letter to Your Future" and reserve your space at "A Weekend with the Author" in December. (Click on "A Weekend with the Author" at the top of this page for info on both the letter and the get-together).

transformation for this blog . . .

Will this blog change at all? Yes! I think you'll love it even more because you'll meet other widows who are walking the same path. And according to the responses on the recent reader survey, we'll post 3 times/ week - on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, and sometimes we'll add an extra special Saturday too. If you haven't done so already, please sign up to receive this blog by email so you don't miss a thing.

How about you? What changes are you facing? How can we pray for you? It's been said that "There's a God-shaped vacuum" in the heart of every person, but a widow friend recently told me there's "a people-shaped hole" too. For many widows this blog is a safe place where that hole starts to fill in as they join a Lifeboat, make a comment, read my book or use it to start a widows group. Check back on Monday to meet Linda as she shares reflections on her May 22nd anniversary of widowhood. Your presence will minister to her, and I know she'll minister to you! Together with faith in the Lord we'll transform our hearts and holes, and maybe even my back! ;)
